Every year, Manor Farm opens its gates for theatre lovers to enjoy entertainment in the wonderful grounds of this historic Elizabethan manor, once refuge for Sir Walter Raleigh.  As well as the theatre, guests are invited to enjoy an optional pre-booked supper, where they will be waited on by serfs and wenches! And serenaded by a strolling player.
